An Invercargill City Council forestry company has been hit with settlement costs totalling $50,000 and issued with a warning by the Overseas Investment Office.

The Overseas Investment Office sent a formal warning letter, in respect of a breach of the Overseas Investment Act, to three companies – including Forest Growth Holdings Limited, a subsidiary company of city council-owned Invercargill City Forests Limited.

The Overseas Investment Office had investigated the purchase of 13 blocks of forestry land in the Wairarapa region between April 2014 and May 2016 by Forest Growth Holdings.

The investigation related to whether Forest Growth Holdings was an associate of Wairarapa Estate Limited, an investment company managed by Australian fund manager New Forests Asset Management PTY Limited [New Forests].
